The Beatles gave this L.A. 1966 press conference at the Capitol Records Tower, Los Angeles on August 28th, 1966, before their Dodger Stadium show.

The press ask Lennon questions about his recent "Bigger than Jesus" remarks. A condescending reporter takes a shot at Ringo while the cameraman can't tell Ringo from John.

David Crosby, who at the time was a member of The Byrds, can occasionally be spotted in the film. Crosby means there's an excellent chance they were high on marijuana at the time.

Later presented with steak branding irons (huh?) and gold records from RIAA for Revolver. Closeups show Brian Epstein lecturing John and Ringo. Later Interviewed by a Dick Clark stand-in, the announcer from the L.A. TV show "Where the Action Is." George is in a whimsical mood, and Paul makes a pun with the name of the TV program.

Following this interview the Beatles returned to the tour with their penultimate--second to last-- performance at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

I was there! It was an incredible show...

The next day, the group would close out their 1966 tour with their historic finale at Candlestick Park in San Fransisco - their last-ever concert.

In the coming years, while there would be no more touring, the Beatles would focus on creativity in the recording studio, producing some of the finest albums of their catalogue.
